The 2013–14 San Antonio Spurs season was the 47th season of the franchise, their 41st in San Antonio and the 38th in the National Basketball Association (NBA). The Spurs entered the season as runner-ups of the 2013 NBA Finals, where they lost to the Miami Heat in seven games, marking the first time the Spurs lost in the NBA Finals. They also entered the season with an NBA-record ten international players.

In the playoffs, the Spurs defeated Dallas Mavericks in seven games in the First Round, the Portland Trail Blazers in five games in the Semifinals, and the Oklahoma City Thunder in six games to advance to the NBA Finals for the sixth time in franchise history. This marked the first time that the Spurs have made back-to-back Finals appearances, also against the Miami Heat, whom they lost against in last year's NBA Finals in seven games and suffered their first loss in the NBA Finals. Unlike the previous year, the Spurs avenged their NBA Finals loss and became NBA Champions after defeating Miami in five games, winning their fifth NBA Championship. The Spurs outscored the Heat in the series by the largest per game average point differential (14.0) in Finals history. San Antonio's Kawhi Leonard was named the Finals Most Valuable Player (MVP).
